According to recent media reports, Angelina Jolie commented on the crisis in India by saying “there are no words to express the sorrow, grief, and solidarity the people of India are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
She’s standing in solidarity with India, grieving together. On promoting her latest film, ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’, which stars the 46-year-old actress as a firefighter, she was recently asked by NDTV to share a message of encouragement for the courageous Indian front-line workers battling the COVID-19 epidemic that is still wreaking havoc in the country.
Jolie said with great emotion, “For those of you in India, we all feel so terribly about the tragedy that has befallen your people, and there are no words to describe our sorrow and empathy for you all. We’re all watching and hoping that things get better and that we can put a positive thought into the minds of those who have lost so many family members. And to answer your question, yes, in my opinion, there is no more noble profession than this film, starring a frontline worker, thinking of all the frontline workers, for those who have chosen to take jobs of service and put their lives on the line for others. I’ve got it! That is something lovely to have.”
Many celebrities, including Nick Jonas, Reese Witherspoon, Camila Cabello, and Shawn Mendes, have voiced their support for India by expressing their thoughts, donating money, and organizing fundraisers. While Angelina Jolie was making the 2005 movie A Mighty Heart in India, her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, and their children, Maddox and Pax, had visited India on a separate trip.
